Practice Philosophy

- Hardworking, multidisciplinary
- Patient attendances and not determined by their ability to pay
- Willingness to see anything and nearly everything

The surgery is part of the history of het evolution of the Health Services in the Swan region. It's founder, Dr Lyon, established the surgery 40 years ago and helped to build the GP component of Swan District Hospital along with several other hard working GP's. This ethos of taking on the challenge was passed on the other GP's who joined the practice.

We now have a huge patient base and we are extremely proud of our hard work and drive with many other specialists and Allied Health Services in the region.

We are keen to teach GP trainees who want to take up the challenge and carry on the tradition.
If your interest is to work and remain in the area then fair partnerships are certainly possible.
